A Total Lack of Dignity

...



It's been two weeks since I found this little kitten, staggering in the gutter, near our house.




Admit it: you're laughing at these pathetic photographs. There's nothing scrawnier than a cat's neck, and this little guy is only just now growing back the fur he lost during his flea infestation.

Robb is convinced that everyone is going to think that these are photos of a dead kitten, so I'll leave you with a cute photo.




Napping in the sun with his Big Uncle Sleeves. Look at those smiles!

That is without doubt the most terrible looking cat I have ever seen! Bless you for taking him in. I think he'll be (almost) pretty by Christmas & he sure has grit.

It may be undignified now, but I'll be he turns into a magnificent cat! Your grace is inspirational.

I'm so glad he's doing better now. :)

What a ham! You'll have to do before and after makeover photos when he's all fluffy and respectable.

I'm just catching up on all your kitten rescue now-I haven't been on blogger much lately. But, on behalf of your little guy, a huge thank you. You are a wonderful soul.

Well, the kitty looks like he found a good new home,and seems to like all his roommates, both the furry and non furry ones!

Glad to hear of Little Dude's improvements. I always find it funny how comfortable kittens are to lie and even sleep flat out on their backs. Do the feral felines have trouble with fleas, or do you stealthily goop their necks for them? Do you think LD could see a re-infestation from hanging out with them?

Poor little fella is just going through an adorable-ugly-duckling phase. He'll grow out of it. Our cat wouldn't have won any beauty contests when we found him either. I bet when this guy gets a new fur coat, and a few extra pounds, he's gonna be one handsome little devil, and he'll scoff at anyone that ever laughed. :)

Hi Lisa - yes, I laughed at the kitten photos - but he's pretty cute considering the wringer he's apparently been through. I am interested in chatting with you about the beehive but didn't know how to contact you other than through here. I'm hesitant to post my e-mail address here (although I'm sure it's probably safe). Would you contact me when you get a spare moment? I'm on the yahoo groups with a recent posting.

Thanks, Lisa Z

I was beginning t' wonder.... he had that glassy-eyed... well, no matter, he's good and fluffy now!

Reminds me of a calico we rescued when I was a child in Southern California. The poor thing was so covered in sand fleas we thought she had "pepper" markings - nope, just bugs! She was a finally freed of fleas after several baths and was a member of our family for another 15 years or so, Good luck with your new family member!

I think the first photo would make a great graphic for a halloween card. Bless you for saving this sweet guy.

What a beautiful story, with the best possible ending (so I read today). The things you do genuinely inspire. Thanks for posting your moments.
